June 15, 1988 – September 28, 2010
Timothy Harriman, a beautiful soul, a compassionate man and a world changer. At the end of life on earth not many will leave a legacy as big or as great as Tim’s. Tim left earth and entered the gates of Heaven on the beautiful morning of September 28th at the age of twenty two. The leaves were spinning, the sky was clear and blue, the air was warm and peace filled the hearts and lives of those blessed enough to call him their own. He will be always cherished as an amazing son, brother, cousin, nephew, friend and husband. You may remember Tim as the Spokeman who biked across Canada in two thousand and seven for Childhood Cancer, raising incredible amounts of support. His heart was so big. Not only will his family ache for him, but so will those inspired by his ride, in Airdrie and all over the world. Tim fought a valiant fight against cancer once as a young teenager, and three more times in his early twenties. In spite of the circumstances surrounding him, he choose to live life to the full, enjoy each moment, marry the girl of his dreams, travel, cook, write a book, spend time with friends and mentor youth. He dreamed of building his dream home, owning a motorcycle, having children and continuing to impact everyone he met. Now, he is face to face with his Maker, family members and friends, happier now than ever before. Tim enjoyed family barbeques, camping at Mount Kidd, hiking, photography, creating, building, singing loud in the shower, late night talks, funny movies, riding his bike, rollerblading and going for walks with his wife. Tim always had a witty comeback for everything, a daredevil comment, and confidence standing up for what was right and just. Tim attended George Mac High School and graduated from Bert Church High School. His teachers, principals and the staff at both schools were so touched and impacted by his presence, his determination and will to do school work and graduate during such an intense time in his life. He never quit. Never ever. Instead he inspired everyone. He dug his heels in and stood firm. There are no words that could possibly sum up such an incredible person, you are one of a kind, there will never be another like you Tim. I’m so happy you are home with our Maker, your best friend Jesus. I can’t wait to run and jump into your arms my love! In the mean time, run with the lions, soar with the eagles, sing, dance, sprint, and I will see you soon. I love you.
